Shibboleth - Unicode Typing for Ancient Scripts

by Logos Bible Software: Shibboleth

Posted: Tuesday, August 23, 2011 at 08:39 PM CT


Shibboleth is a tool for typing Unicode text in ancient scripts. It was designed to help people unfamiliar with a script easily enter the correct characters, and then copy text to the clipboard in Unicode or another format.

While a keyboard layout is provided for several scripts, the emphasis is on helping the user recognize and select the proper characters. To that end, user input is shown in both typed and rendered format, with multiple font options, and all of the characters for each script are selectable from a well organized palette on the right side of the application window.

As an internal tool, Shibboleth is designed around our specific needs. But we have found it useful in so many situations that we wanted to share it with others. Shibboleth is licensed for personal, non-commercial use, and is offered with no warranty and no support.
